It depends on the car shipping company, but most should be able to deal with your vehicle just days before your desired vehicle shipment. However, do enquire in good time, so that you are made aware of how long it could take to process and how long it will take to ship. If you need your car shipped in a certain time frame, then enquire in plenty of time to avoid disappoint. If your car is being transported via Ro-Ro shipment, then it can take a considerably long time to arrive at far away destinations. In this case, definitely enquire many weeks before your desired time of arrival.
